Now that we've got real live moderation, I don't think that the censor needs to be so strict. If you have access to the list and want to share it with me, I'd be willing to give you my perspective on which should be allowed and which should remain banned.
I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!
is it linoleum or vinyl? I think it makes a difference. I was able to pull the vinyl off with a heat gun but am left with the under layer stuck in the glue on the cement subfloor. Is that ok to leave or is the torch next?
I recommend to remove all previous floors, then prepare the floor for the new linoleum (vinyl).
If the manual, the power scr-apers or the heat gun don't work, bring in the torch. You only heat the tiles, don't burn them, and they lift right up. Wear a mask and gloves. Work slowly. Dispose legally.
Caution: The insurance company will not pay a dime if you burn your house down, not if you have insurance nor if you don't.
